The Theory And A Language (tTAAL)
Moira Yip on What phonology has learnt from Chinese

Moira Yip's article is the first in a new series, The Theory And A
Language (tTAAL TAAL). In this series we highlight the fruitful
interaction between investigat-ing particular languages and the

the development of the theory. Forthcoming articles in the series are
on Hebrew, Japanese and Irish.
